>Odyllic – #135

A splash of carved red coral that caught my eye in Odile Landragin’s garden yesterday.
And here we all are again…

Odile Landragin has been here before and she’ll be back again, because her garden in the Herman-Ehlers-Strasse in Mainz-Gonsenheim is unique. (And if she was looking for an apprentice, I’d happily work there.)

I get groans when I say it’s an “odyllic spot”, but it has to be seen to be believed.

And one good thing about the (almost) non-stop rain over the last 4 weeks is that a) it cuts our water bill and b) makes Odille’s garden look even more lush.

This weekend, she’s hosting Dorothee Wenz, a ceramic artist and Elke Wolf, a goldsmith who doesn’t have a website I can link to..

They’ve spread themselves out throughout the greenhouses and garden, with just excellent displays.

Rings in a bed of sand suspended in glass jars, Dorothee’s tall ceramics (that always remind me of Dr Seuss’s animals for some reason) in a sunken garden. ear studs in pots of wheat grass. (More over at Flickr, if you’re interested)

So – all in all – a good afternoon out.

(And there was free cider and apricot flan..)
